Democrats' spending bill passes the House, bumpy road ahead in the Senate

House Democrats passed President Biden's massive reconciliation spending bill on Friday morning by a vote of 220-213.

Moderate and progressive Democrats negotiated over the bill for months but eventually came to a deal on legislation that has a price tag of just over half of the $3.5 trillion progressives demanded.

The bill will now go to the Senate, where it is expected to be changed significantly before going back to the House either in December or early next year.
